Default Just a rant .....

Arghhhh resellers! I emailed this customer two months ago. Dear so and so, we
will start the transfer of this domain for your client. Please make sure all website
and email setting are correct as dns will be switched the next month.

Just now I get a ticket: My client cannot login and read his email.....
2 Months later and the local butcher cannot read his email

Even worse, all email bounced as there was no account set up

p.s.

If anyone here is in need of free website hosting gimme a shout

http://webframe.nl/ been in the business for almost ten years now.

Nice business you got there. If you ever need help with any of the following, shout up:
  • Apache / PHP / MySQL setup and management
  • Website design in XHTML and CSS
  • Web programming in PHP
  • Generic VB.NET/C# applications (for Windows)

Been coding for 14 years now, which isn't bad considering I'm 21.

perhaps you should have talked to your client just before everything changed.

As this reseller is in charge of quite some domains and he normally
manages his business as good as can be done there was really no
need for this. When we explicitly tell him that he has to set up the
domain and that this has to be done in one month this is ample
notice imho. When it would have been a direct customer and we
would have had the idea that this customer was somewhat clueless
we might indeed have warned them say one week before the change.

He hasn't got a leg to stand on. You informed him way in advance and it's his own fault that his customers are getting bad service. Give him a kick up the backside and tell him to pay attention next time.

Dead thread?

I need to rant.

Have taken over my lawn.
Here is this so called democracy quasi-police state of Ontario, the government has BANNED herbicide.

Quote:
There is good news for back yard vegetable gardeners in Ontario. Beginning in the spring of 2009, the cosmetic use of pesticides and herbicides will be against the law.
The cosmetic use.

In the past (happier times, the past) I used a product called Weed & Feed to control these weeds. It was great stuff - connect the sprayer jug to the garden hose and just water the whole yard until all of the W&F was gone. Once or twice a year - in the spring (NOW!) and mid to late summer. NO BIG DEAL!
CANNOT buy it anymore - banned - against THE LAW!

I'm considering the black market for a fresh supply, or cross border shopping (smuggling?? a CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE!!!)

Good grief...

My neighbour uses a different approach. In a deep throat like type encounter, he disclosed his new methodology - a syringe:

full of DIESEL FUEL( ) injected into the centre of the offensive growth "flat out KILLS it" he said with a maniacal gleam in his eye, slack grin, all the while looking nervously behind to see if the Thought Police were closing in.
" I'd need roughly 50 gallons of diesel to kill all of these!" I said " and the time it would take, my aching back, bending over to directly inject an environmentally harmful (albeit extremely effective) treatment to each and every fracking plant???"

No thanks, I'd rather take a FLAMETHROWER!!!!

Burn it down and start anew.

Or...

Send in the heavy equipment

Ah, clean weed free ASPHALT.

Bright side: No worries for a place to park.

Unless of course you get cowboys to do the job. Then the weeds will just break right through the asphalt.

Maybe use the flamethrower on the government?

Some salt in water injected into the heart of the little bastard also works
by drying them out from the inside and when you kill them all before
they make seeds you should be happy the coming years.

My neighbours thought it a good idea to have some plants from a
local pond in their garden pool now guess what I'm kicking around
when it's dark and rainy....

These buggers make it a sport to jump up when you lift your foot
and somehow manage to end up in front of it. Whack! Another
one hits the shack
